The ASRock A780LM-S is a budget-friendly, Micro ATX motherboard designed for putting together an inexpensive gaming system. Outfitted with an AM3/AM2+/AM2 socket, the motherboard supports a variety of processors, including AMD Phenom II, Athlon II, Athlon 64, and Sempron processors. Also supported is 8GB of 1066(OC) DDR2 RAM, six SATA drives, and standard Ethernet. More importantly, the board comes with an integrated 512MB Radeon GPU, but features an empty PCI Express 2.0 slot, which means it’s ATI Hybrid CrossFireX compatible for users seeking ultra-fast frame rates and graphics performance. Unfortunately there is no internal support for Gigabit LAN, eSATA, FireWire, or USB 3.0. However, users say overclocking is possible via the OC Tuner interface.
